You're given an airplane ticket to anywhere in the world – where do you choose to go (and why)?
South of France then back to Oz via Hawaii – my two favourite places of the world, South of France for Grand Prix Weekend and catch up with friends, then a chill out relaxing time in Waikiki
What's your favourite memory?
Sitting watching Match of The Day with my Dad on a Saturday night
Who is your inspiration?
My Dad, he’s the best person I’ve ever met, he would give away his last pound in his pocket to help out a family member or friend, 10 years after his death I still have people telling what a great man he was.
You're on a desert island – what album have you brought with you?
Hysteria by Def Leppard
What would be your death-row dinner?
Lots of very good European (specifically French) cheeses, the biggest cheese platter you could create all washed out down with the best French Champagne of course (Crystal, Krug or Bolly would be great)
